documentary florida wedding and elopement photographer


I don't just tell stories, I paint them with visuals that will ignite your soul. My timeless and authentic imagery is designed to evoke emotions that transcend words, leaving you feeling all the feels.

Hi, Babe! Hayleigh here!

I have been creating art for lovers since 2020 and there is nothing more that I love than watching two souls connect and unite; becoming one. 

After missing so many moments of my life while I was in the military, I knew I needed to capture those special moments for others. I take a very artistic approach to photography, editing with a very moody, yet timeless and cinematic style. I capture the magic within each passing moment to show your unique love in a storytellin’ kinda way. Let’s tell the story of this down to your core love you share and document every inch of your burning passion.

This is the photography experience you deserve

Whether you are eloping in the mountains of Switzerland, or marrying in your backyard in Kentucky, I will be wherever you need me. Weddings, elopements, or anything to do with lovers is my expertise. Let’s celebrate the uniting of two unique souls and break from tradition to tell a story that is completely unique to you and your lover. It is imperative that I get to the core of you and your relationship so I can capture the individuality of you, and give you intentional, beautiful, and bad-ass poetic imagery.

the stories i tell

these are the things that light the fire inside of my soul

"I highly recommend Hayleigh T Photography. The experience she provided was unlike any photoshoot we have ever had. She really took the time to get to know us and know our relationship. Our session was so much fun and full of love. She did an amazing job at giving us prompts to build emotion and always made sure we were comfortable. She guided us the whole time and we never felt awkward in front of her camera. The turnaround time for our images was INSANE. I was still swooning over the session when I received sneak peeks the next freaking day! I can’t even begin to tell you how incredible these images were. She has an amazing eye for this art, and will literally roll around in the sand to get the perfect shot. Also, her pricing is so fair considering how much she does pre, during, and post shoot. I will recommend Hayleigh to anyone. She is the best photographer I have ever worked with."

"Words can’t describe what a pleasure it was working with Hayleigh, but I’ll try. Hayleigh has a way of taking your vision and bringing it to life while also adding her own personal touch. Honestly, she is the best photographer I’ve had, and I’ve worked with some great ones. She has a way of making you comfortable in front of the camera, almost as if she isn’t even there. Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she also has a personality that reflects such. She’s funny, kind, talented, and fun. I only wish I could bring her with me when we move."

Hayleigh is so easy to work with , her down to earth nature is exactly what I was looking for when I was planning my wedding. Hayleigh did our engagement photos downtown Pensacola it was so fun like we were kids running around getting the perfect shots. They turned out so beautiful and it was exactly the vibe I was going for!! After our engagement photos I knew our wedding photos would be epic. Having Hayleigh for our wedding was so special it was like having someone by your side all day rooting for you and getting those perfect shots but also having so much fun while doing it! It was so natural and fun. Hayleigh THANK YOU for capturing my most special day receiving my gallery I cried how beautiful each detail shot was!! You truly captured our day and the feel of our wedding! Thank you thank you thank you!

Hayleigh is such a creative and innovative photographer! We absolutely enjoyed our session with her! She did our engagement photos and will be doing our wedding! I'm so excited to work with her again! She is smart, witty but so laid back it made the whole process smooth. I'm not photogenic at ALL but she helped me with poses and gave me plenty of tips so I didn't feel so awkward! She is amazing!

My approach to photography is far more nuanced than merely taking a picture; it's a heartfelt expression of love that takes inspiration from the silver screen. Every photograph I capture exudes a cinematic essence, evoking the enchantment of a love story. My objective is to capture the magic of love, and to do this, I focus on the little details, grand landscapes, and intimate moments. Each gallery I create is carefully curated to narrate a story, one that feels as comfortable as the warmth of home.

My services are offered here, there, and everywhere.
